“What is this thing? Do I write with it?” Fallon said about the upside down mug.

It turns out Barry was just poking fun at the fact that no one ever puts anything in his cup.

“In the past, on some mornings I say, ‘you know my cup is always empty nobody ever puts anything my cup,'” Barry said Monday night, before the “Tonight Show” aired.

“So I said lets go on the air and I’ll have my cup turned upside down, and maybe see if people notice that the cup is upside down. They always say that my cup is always empty, not just half full or half empty, it’s always empty, so there you go, cheers.”
